Title Shallow stream in Lotus Mountain, Guangzhou, China
Volume 150L
Background As a wild-exploration enthusiast, I often snorkel in the stream to observe underwater creatures when collecting in the wild. There was a scene that made me remember. When I snorkel in the stream and explored the trail of creatures near the huge pebbles at the bottom of the riverbed, I suddenly looked up and saw the sunlight coming through the gap behind the huge pebbles. I was touched at this moment. This time, I decide to restore this partial real scene in the stream that I remember.
In this landscaping, I inserted the leafy branches of the plants on the shore into the water. The stones of different sizes at the bottom, some branches and fallen leaves form a three-dimensional, imaginative space that real reflect the underwater richness of the stream.

Materials The pebbles, rocks and sands were all collected in the river. The shape and color of the selected pebbles, rocks and sands are basically the same as the habitat. At the same time, some fallen leaves and branches were found at the bottom of the river. After a certain treatment and disinfection, they were used in my aquarium.
